Teaching Gallery at Hudson Valley Community College opens semester with mixed media exhibit by Sarah Walko, NYC artist
February 2 - March 4
The Teaching Gallery at Hudson Valley Community College announces So That I Might Speak to You of Your Magnificence, an exhibition of sculpture, installation and drawings by Brooklyn artist Sarah Walko, on view Feb. 2 through March 4, 2017. The Teaching Gallery is located on the ground floor of the Administration Building on the Troy campus.
Walko will discuss her work on Thursday, Feb. 2 from 3 to 4 p.m. in the Bulmer Telecommunications Center Auditorium, with a reception following from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Teaching Gallery. Both events are free and open to the public.
Through sculpture, drawing and installation, Walko explores the mythic possibilities of objects, images and imagination. The artist mines the unknowable space between her combined materials for new possibilities of narrative, essence and reality. Using such disparate found materials as animal bones, bird nests, gems, flora, texts and test tubes, Walko distills their enigmatic qualities through juxtapositions that establish unexpected tableaux or situations. As ancient alchemists sought in their proto‐scientific experiments a physical manifestation for intangible transitions of spirit and essence, Walko funnels these new relationships between objects to evoke the irrational and the illusory much as a shaman unites good and evil or consciousness and physical existence.
